New York Road Runners is getting people of all ages and abilities running the sidewalks, streets and parks of the five boroughs of New York City.
In a new blog post, our senior consultant Andrew Weltch explains how this not-for-profit organisation aims to inspire people through running., and about his own experience of taking part in a recent NYRR event in Brooklyn.
The New York Road Runners serves nearly 600,000 runners of all ages and abilities annually through hundreds of races, community runs, walks, training sessions, and other events – a programme which includes the biggest road race in the world, the TCS NYC Marathon.
“Taking part in a NYRR event was a very memorable experience for me, and an eye-opener into a remarkable organisation, whch is getting huge numbers of New Yorkers into running, and making a real impact throughout the five boroughs and beyond – on communities, on young people, charities, and every individual runner,” he writes.
